|Bow Valley Campground, Bow Valley Provincial Park|
What We Liked
- Family-friendly campground: Most campers were families who stayed put for the weekend, so there was very little traffic in the campground and everyone was quiet after 10 pm.
- Shaded, private campsites
- Power and water sites available
- On site store: They had coffee, so we were able to remedy our coffee emergency!
- Paved Bike trail and several hiking trails connecting the campground to trailheads and Day Use Areas.
- Cell phone reception so we could connect with the friends we were meeting at the campground
- Clean outhouses - Toilet paper and hand sanitizer were always full and washrooms were clean even though the campground was full.

Know Before You Go
- Make a reservation so you won't be disappointed! We headed out Friday night without a reservation and the campground was full. Fortunately we were meeting friends who had room for us.
- The campground is between two highways and is across the river from train tracks, so bring ear plugs if you are a light sleeper. I was woken up a few times in the night, but my husband and children slept fine.
- There are no showers (but there are showers at nearby Willow Rock Campground).
- Outhouses are few and far between, so book a site near an outhouse if you don't want to ride your bike to the toilets.
- Pick up firewood when you register as Loops C, D & E are a bit far from the store.
